Director of Kirov Unitary Enterprise sentenced to 8.5 years for bribery
The Kirov District Court has sentenced ex-Director of Obsluzhivanie meditsinskogo transporta ('Medical transport maintenance') Regional Unitary Enterprise Vladimir Mamaev to 8.5 years in prison and a fine of 3 million rubles for allegedly accepting a bribe of 1.5 million rubles.
Mamaev will serve his sentence in a penal colony. The regional prosecutor's office reported that the official was caught red-handed when taking a bribe.
Investigation into the case was completed at the end of last year. In late November, a decree on liquidation of the Kirov Regional State Unitary Enterprise was signed. In a recent interview with the regional press, Head of the Department for Supervision over the Implementation of Legislation on Combating Corruption of the Kirov region prosecutor's office Pavel Matantsev noted that it is one of the three cases on bribery in the region for 2016.
First, 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev tried to set fire to the Severny shopping center, then he began to attack the visitors with an ax and a knife, and later, after running outside, he stabbed random people in the street. Four out of the seven wounded are severely injured.
The woman said she has remained silent because she was afraid she and her daughter might have been killed. However, she decided to give the information away after the investigator who investigated the murder mysteriously died.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which had previously approved an indictment in a high-profile bootlegging case against billionaire and Forum St Petersburg Group of Companies CEO Dmitry Mikhalchenko, is now demanding the Russian Supreme Court to change the initial jurisdiction.
